While Dota 2 is at its core “just a game”, the competitive nature is a huge part of the overall enjoyment of the experience. As balance patches change how the game is played, certain heroes fit the playstyle better than others. We refer to this as “the meta” which evolves based on what wins games most consistently. Walk the meta path and discover how winning ain’t everything, but it sure is fun.
